I like making these "teaching" pages that go over informational stuff. I hope you find it valuable as well.
Also yes, there is a visual depiction of Jesus Christ and the other two members of the Godhead. I have prayed about it and feel God is okay with it, and I promise I will be respectful in my depiction of them. That aside, I hope you like their dove-like designs!



I should give a more proper introduction to Joseph Smith, because so far I've only talked about his death, which doesn't do him justice. Here's the key events of his involvement in restoring Christ's Gospel (pt. 1):

In 1820 when he was living in upstate New York with his impoverished farming family, 14-year-old Joseph had questions regarding the salvation of his soul, and which church to join to best follow God and have his sins forgiven. He decided to pray and ask God, trusting that he would be guided if he asked sincerely and after doing his research.

(James 1:5 - "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.")

In answer to his prayer, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph. Jesus declared to him that the fullness of his Church and Gospel had not been on the earth for a very long time. However, he told Joseph that society was not ready to receive the fullness of his Church and Gospel again, and that it would start very soon.

("Joseph, this is my beloved son. Hear him.")

In 1823, Joseph received a visit from an angel directing him to a place near his home where an ancient record written on golden plates was hidden in the earth. After spiritually preparing himself for the task and having the right people put in his path, he translated the plates into English with the help of God's power from April to June of 1829.
